4yr/50k over tomorrow

Any words of conventional wisdom would be appreciated.

I'll start with cutting down on WOTs by 50%.
And I'll stop embarrassing M3s, as a gesture of sacrifice to the BMW Gods...Just kidding! Actually in 2014(M4) I'm probably toast.

If you are aging out get your last brake fluid flush on the house!

Not many better cars to step into.

Some cars may be cheaper, newer or more reliable etc but not better.

Now is the time for self reflection and discovery. The answer to this life changing challenge lies within -- Harry has what you need!

Many years it has been....I visited Harry's. Deep in the mystery that is South Street, impossible to find unless your intent be pure, Harry's is the real deal....the Big Kahuna....the Geater wit da Heater....

Plan well, daytrader -- you will never be as you were -- suddenly immune to the whims of Service Advisors, you will find that on discovering Harry's your pilgrimage will have just begun -- you have much to learn, and many tools to buy. Gurus will appear in strange, independent shops, and your perfect knowledge of Automobile Maintenance will continue to grow throughout your life, fruitful as it will be....click on your mandala below.

My M52TU was my first love, lots of fun with no worries. My hope is the N54 does half as well in yrs 5 - 10.

Thanks to all that replied.
